  1. I remember looking into this many years ago and learning that I should not be concerned about the weight of my collection, provided it was placed against the load-bearing outer walls. To bear this out, I have not read anywhere anytime about a second floor apartment floor collapsing under the weight of a record collection. I found this discussion online and will share it here. It looks like weightlifters who live in second floor apartments have many of the same concerns as vinyl collectors.
  2. PO Soon: TWIN PEAKS

    David Lynch signed copies of the Twin Peaks score and soundtrack albums tonight at Amoeba in Hollywood. Perhaps they will post some online tomorrow ....
  3. It's funny, I buy pretty much all my box sets from Amazon Warehouse (including Narkopop, the Kraftwerk box, the U2 Joshua Tree Box and several others). In my experience, I have had better 'luck' with the box sets than my normal Amazon Warehouse purchases.
  4. Cheapest I've seen yet: Narkopop box in 'Acceptable' condition from Amazon Warehouse for $39.12 shipped with Prime: Narkopop box
  5. The regular 2-LP version is offered by US Amazon Warehouse now for $13.97 shipped with Amazon Prime: Steven Wilson To The Bone

  10. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Yes, the shipping is actually reasonable. $8.99 for any size order in the USA. I put about 10 things in my shopping cart an hour ago. 3 have already sold out before I could purchase them.
  11. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Nonesuch is having their 1-day sale again. They do this at least once a year. Stuff sells out. Shipping costs are relatively high. 50% off everything: Nonesuch sale
  12. Love the band but they seem to be having trouble selling tickets for their tour this time around. (Their first time through L.A. on this year was a hot hot ticket: bands have to accept they can't come through a second or even third and fourth time on the same tour and expect the same strong response.) Their show in Santa Barbara was cancelled today. I'm sure it was for poor ticket sales. Hundreds of tickets available for each of their other California shows.

  14. PO: Billy Corgan - OGILALA

    That's so strange. I have his autograph. He was set up at the NAMM convention maybe 8 years ago and was just signing photographs and handing them out as quickly as he could write, to anyone who wanted to take one.

  16. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    I still haven't received Manchester Orchestra, and it is overdue. I wrote to TunesOnline through Amazon. Here is the answer I received: "Sorry for the delay. We had a pricing glitch with Amazon that caused our price to plummet, and thus our orders to skyrocket. We are honoring these orders, but have had to reach out to our distributors for extra product. We did not anticipate that it would take this long. We received the rest of our Manchester Orchestra LPs this afternoon, and they will ship out tomorrow. Thanks for your patience. -Chip @TunesOnline"

  18. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    Did anyone get their MO LP's from TunesOnline? I had a 'shipped' notice without tracking, and have heard nothing since.
  19. Big Mansun fan here, but I am not feeling this Paul Draper project at all. Moving on ....

  22. Dan, I think I might have made a mistake. That vinyl release I bought looks like the 2012 version, not the new 2017 version. I have cancelled my order.
  23. Thanks for posting the Marillion LP! I see that Amazon.co.uk has the cheapest price I found quickly online: $24.25 including shipping to the USA with Amazon Prime. Ordered!
